Title: Open Ears festival of music and sound
Location: Waterloo Region, Ontario, Canada
Description: 2002 Griffin Poetry Prize winner Christian Bok will take part in this year’s Open Ears Festival of Music and Sound. Based in Waterloo Region, the festival uses unusual venues to present a very eclectic range of musics from new classical music to electroacoustic, musique actuelle and sound installation. The focus of all events is the act of listening. Featuring a mix of local, national and international artists, concerts have featured ensembles from traditional ensembles such as string quartet, orchestra, choir to turntable art, multi-media, anachronism and dance. Concerts are presented indoors and out, in traditional concert halls and churches as well as alternative spaces, including abandoned buildings and parkades.
